This is my first seamless sweater. I had a bit of a problem starting, because I don’t have all the needles it requires, but I was able to borrow someone’s “Denise” set. I’ll see how it goes before I purchase my own. The yarn was a present :)
It is finally finished and I am very happy with it. I made the sleeves 3/4. I like that length much better than the length in the instructions and thanks to “beckyharb” and “Misplacedpom” I made the neckline higher. I followed beckyharb’s instructions to make the neckline higher (she was very nice to e-mail them to me) and then followed Misplacedpom’s advise to bind off with very small needles (I used size 2). I like it a lot. I do wish I had not knitted the two seams under the arms together. By knitting them together the pattern shifted and is not continuous, but you can only see it when I lift up my arms. I am too scared that everything will unravel to re-do it, but am thinking about it nonetheless.
